Chapel Place | Telford Homes receives planning

CZWG are excited to be working with Telford Homes on the next stage of Chapel Place, a mixed-use scheme in Ilford, East London.

The London Borough of Redbridge resolved to grant planning consent for the development which will deliver 447 new student bedrooms and 837 new homes, a mix of Build to Rent, London Affordable Rent and Intermediate tenures. The scheme will provide new commercial spaces and a new Sainsbury’s store – purpose-built to meet the needs of the new and existing communities. The impact of the Chapel Place scheme will be transformative and, supported by the nearby cross-rail link, represents a large and important contribution to growth in Ilford as envisioned by LB Redbridge in its development prospectus.

David Donachie, Director at CZWG, said, “We're thrilled to be continuing our relationship with Telford Homes on the Chapel Place development and helping to deliver on their commitment to building sustainable communities.”

Designed by HTA, the consented proposals comprise seven buildings ranging from 2 storeys in the south to 36 storeys towards the north and will provide 6,813 sqm of public realm, including the largest piece of greened public realm in Ilford and 3,668 sqm of play space for children.

The scheme achieves a 60% reduction in carbon emissions, an improvement over the required 35% with a sitewide energy strategy that avoids combustible forms of energy and stands ready to connect to future district energy initiatives. A car free transport strategy promotes sustainable modes of transport and associated charging points.
